The thing with anxiety is that oftentimes it is very much in the body and people experience it in different parts of their body, and they can locate it and say that it’s, you know, focused in their stomach or it’s focused up in their back and shoulders or just different areas of the body.

And so it’s important to understand the different symptoms that you might be feeling, and you may have ended up going to see your doctor because it’s very common to end up in the doctor’s office or an emergency room thinking that maybe you’re having some kind of chest issue, heart attack ,only to be told you have anxiety or you’ve been having a panic attack.

And so I wanted to take a moment to go through the common symptoms that people do feel in their body. Now, if you don’t feel any or all of these, it doesn’t mean that you still don’t have anxiety. That’s kind of how complicated anxiety can be. But if you’re experiencing several or most of these kinds of symptoms, most likely you are experiencing anxiety. And so I’m going to read them to you and to do that I need to put my readers on.
